Wisdom of the Ages

“The worth and excellency of a soul is to be measured by the object of its love: he who loveth mean and sordid things doth thereby become base and vile; but a nobleand well placed affection doth advance and improve the spirit into a conformity with the perfections which it loves”
– Henry Scougal

“God’s first thought is not what we can do, but what we can become.
Works are subservient to what we become.”

Wisdom of the Ages – Jacob Boehme

Wisdom of the Ages

Jacob Boehme

“A Christian is he who lives in Christ, and in whom Christ’s power is active. He must feel the divine fire of love burn in his heart. This fire is the Spirit of Christ, who continually crushes the head of the serpent, meaning the desires of the flesh. The flesh is governed by the will of the world; but the spiritual fire in man is kindled by the Spirit. He who wants to become a Christian must not boast and say: ‘I am a Christian!’ but he should desire to become one, and prepare all the conditions necessary that the Christ may live in him. Such a Christian will perhaps be hated and persecuted by the nominal Christians of his time; but he must bear his cross, and thereby he will become strong”
– Jacob Boehme
